Easter in the Maldives

Hello my dear Friends! Happy Easter to all!

I couldn’t have dreamt of a better destination to celebrate Easter than the Conrad Rangali Island!

Located in the Southern Ari Atoll (or formerly known asAlifu Dhaalu Atoll), the Conrad is internationally renowned for having the first underwater restaurant:

Located in the Southern Ari Atoll (or formerly known as Alifu Dhaalu Atoll), the Conrad is internationally renowned for having the first underwater restaurant: Ithaa! How cool is that?

After having spent a month in San Francisco working on a secret project (I will soon let you know about it, I promise…), Diogo and I decided to spend Easter in the Maldives.

Yes: We spent last Christmas there but the Maldives are such a paradise on Earth that you can’t get enough of it! We, therefore, flew from San Francisco to the Maldives with a leftover in Hong Kong.

The total hours of flight were around 20 hours! 14 hours to Hong Kong and 5-6hours to the Maldives.

With so many hours of plane, we decided to spend 2 weeks in the Maldives instead of only one like in December. In fact, from my home in Malta, it only takes 10 hours to get to the Maldives (2 hours flight to Istambul and 8h:30 to the Maldives).

We spent 5 wonderful days at the Conrad Rangali Island (from the 16th, Easter day, to the 20th April). I was really amazed by the number of excursions and activities available on-sight: from sunset cruises, spa treatments, whale sharks excursions, snorkeling with turtles, dolphins watch, and much more!

Below are some of my photos-memories taken during the stay:

One of my favorite excursion was the sunset cruise!

Unlike many other hotels, the Conrad has a proper Yacht to take you and your partner on a magical sunset show!

The staff gave us champagne and some appetizers which were really appreciated to enjoy even more the view! Onboard there were only Diogo and I and an American couple.

My friend Madeleine, who came to the Conrad 2 days after, even saw Dolphins during her sunset cruise!

Another favorite was the infinite pool reserved for Adults only!

The view was incredible overlooking to the other island of the Conrad (the resort has 2 islands connected with a bridge)!

It’s known as the Quiet Zone where there is no children disturbing and a very chilling music to give a zen vibe!

The snorkeling experience was incredible! Well, as you probably know, Maldives is famous for its coral reefs full of marine life such as turtles, fishes, manta rays, etc.

Madeleine, Iqbal, Diogo and I went on a private excursion early in the morning where we could find many turtles (as you may see above)! The water was really clear! After snorkeling for over an hour, we spent our time tanning on the boat’s rooftop.

Have you ever been to the Conrad Rangali? Some of my readers told me by private message on Instagram they spent their honeymoon at the Conrad and loved it! How was your experience?
